Hi,

I recently had to send a link to a coworker and needed it to be encrypted so that it wouldn't be reached by third parties and bots. So I searched online and found this website called http://www.urlcrypt.to/ Has anyone used it and is it safe? Can anyone specify how is the website supposed to work? Thanks!

Are you emailing it?

 

If so Virtru has a free encryption software that's sooo easy to use.  It works with Google Chrome, Outlook 2016 and Outlook 2013.  It encrypts both the message itself and any attachments.

URLcrypt seems a good way to encrypt the URLs but I don't get it from whom it would protect us? I did make an encrypted link (http://urlcrypt.to/u/rpmIyTuvlV) leading back to this forum, and it is asking me for the password. It seems a good way to protect personal URLs that you don't want public. But, who's behind the service? seems suspicious.

 

Vitru gives me the sense of encrypting emails? Can't we just setup PGP keys?
